Island Gas Limited submit further information to support planning application for shale gas exploration

Additional information has been submitted to the County Council by Island Gas Limited (IGas) as part of their planning application to explore for shale gas on land off Springs Road, to the north-east of Misson in Bassetlaw.

The information was requested by the County Council following feedback from a range of national and local organisations as part of the planning application consultation process.

The information submitted by IGas provides greater clarity on a number of issues affecting the site including:

  • details of the development
  • site selection and the sequential test
  • surface water run-off
  • ecology
  • traffic and transportation
  • unexploded ordnance
  • landscape and visual impact

The additional information will be used by the County Council’s Development Management Team to prepare a report on the IGas planning application for consideration by members of the Planning and Licensing Committee.
